Sixth row starts for Alice duo

Sixth row starts for Alice duo

It was another day of hard work for the Alice Team riders in Italy on Saturday.

Satellite Ducati pair Toni Elias and Sylvain Guintoli have qualified 16th and 18th respectively for the Gran Premio d´Italia Alice.

Toni Elias – 16th

`It isn´t an easy situation and we can´t hide from it. Me, my Team, Ducati and Bridgestone are doing all we can to be able to fight for better positions. This afternoon things went slightly better and we are hopeful of being in shape to fight for the top ten in tomorrow´s race. This is a really nice track where motivation can give you an extra push. I feel good and I am determinate. I also want to have some fun tomorrow.´

Sylvain Guintoli – 17th

`This morning we went quite well and we are really hopeful for tomorrow´s race. In the afternoon we tried various solution to try to improve even more, but we didn´t manage to make that big step forward. A small technical problem limited our work during the qualifying session. My race pace is really close to my fastest lap time on qualifying tyres and this gives me good hope for the race. Tomorrow I will be looking for my best result of the season so far.´
